<Anchor> A  

fire broke out in a densely populated area of ​​Busan's food stalls, and 8 stores were damaged.

It was a vulnerable place due to the lack of proper firefighting facilities.

Reporter Lee Tae-hoon of KNN covered the story.


Red flames are rising from inside the food stall.

Firefighters on the scene continue to spray water, but the fire is not easily extinguished.

The fire broke out at the Pochang Carriage Village in Taejongdae, Busan, around 4 am today (22nd).

Eight out of 34 stores were burned.

As you can see, the tent burned down and only the bare reinforcing bar remains, and inside the store, black-scorched ingredients and various household items are scattered all over the place.

The food stalls, a means of livelihood for merchants, were quickly turned to ashes and nothing was left.

While the cause of the fire is estimated to be electrical factors, the estimated property damage by firefighting is equivalent to KRW 40 million.

In April, a fire broke out in the food stalls of Busan Station Pungmul Street, and 10 stores were turned to ashes.

Food stalls that do not have proper firefighting facilities are more vulnerable to fire because there are many combustible materials.

Fire prevention measures are needed ahead of the winter cold in the midst of fires in food stalls.
